About the Property

Chalet, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Exhale with Superb Lake views just 90 minutes from New York City! Pull in at the Pawling Train Station and take a cab to the Chalet!

Impressive, 2400 square foot, five bedroom, three bathroom, three-story, chalet-style home on Whaley Lake in Dutchess County, New York. Beautifully furnished and just 90 minutes drive from Midtown New York City.

TRY THIS: A Working Vacation,
With your family spending the week at the Lake, it is a short 10 minute drive from the Chalet to Metro North Railroad in Patterson. Take The Metro North directly to Grand Central Station departing at 7:02am and arriving Grand Central at 8:27am. Return in the evening to your relaxed family, departing Grand Central Station 5:59pm, arrive Patterson 7:27pm. Then, after a working week, enjoy the weekend with your family at beautiful Whaley Lake.

Regardless of the time of year, the Chalet offers a tranquil setting to relax and unwind. Recline on the spacious, second-story surrounding deck, take to the water in the canoes, or in winter, enjoy the warmth of the wood-burning fire and watch the snow fall.

The Lake house offers a very spacious vacation and entertaining environment, ideal for families with children of all ages, a group of friends or a romantic getaway for two. From the first hint of light in the morning to the colorful glows of the dusk sky, the exhilarating, elevated views of the pristine lake and its surroundings will impress.

Why Holmes, NY, USA:
Peaceful and Serene are the two words to describe the feelings once you enter the Chalet...We fell in love with it at first sight! It has beautiful countryside setting, water access, and enough interesting things to do in the area for exploration and entertaining. The house feels so airy and spacious that you'll also enjoy staying inside just doing nothing.
